I too am in New England. I finish Herceptin in February and plan on starting the AE37 vaccine trial at Sibley in D.C. in March. I agree about getting more women involved. My onc really believes that these vaccine will be the future of BC tx and is very supportive of me doing the trial.

Just wanted to correct that the Neuvax trial does enroll patients with more than 3 positive nodes, so don't let that stop you if you're interested!

Don't know yet if I'll meet the HLA criteria, but with my 7 positive nodes I have the concent paperwork in hand (wish me luck!).
